If you want to stay green with your holiday crafting and gift giving this year, here are some of our top picks for eco-friendly handmade items and craft supplies. Enjoy!
Maroon Flower Stars — Long Basin Earrings by Adaptive ReUse, $32
Christine Terrell is a master of turning everyday tin into gorgeous jewelry. I love the way she can pull out small motifs from busy canisters and discarded pieces to create beautiful works of wearable art. These simple earrings would look great with any outfit, and I also love the new etching work and constructed pendants she’s doing these days.
Poodle Felt Pillow by Photographik on Etsy, $45
I love the graphic look of this fun felt pillow, especially because the felt is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Lion Brand Organic Cotton Yarn, $6.50
This luscious organic cotton yarn from Lion Brand is free of any dyes, “herbicides, pesticides and other agro-chemicals.” It’s a perfect gift for your favorite knitter or crocheter, or the perfect material to use for making a simple gift like this sweet crochet baby blanket.
ReMake It! Bottle Lamp from RePlayGround, $40
Save six empty glass bottles of your favorite beverage and combine them with this lamp kit from RePlayGround to create a custom recycled conversation piece for your home decor.
Vanilla Lip Balm Organic Natural eco-friendly Gloss by herbolution on Etsy, $5
This vanilla lip balm in a sliding-lid container reminds of my favorite lip glosses as a kid, except that this one is all-natural and truly good for your lips!
